City Highlights

Cape Town is a place where old and new harmoniously converge - whether it be its history, architecture, cultural pursuits or the essence of its people. Dominated by towering Table Mountain and set on a peninsula of soaring, rocky heights, Cape Town offers a multitude of things to do and places to see. Here are a few of the places you might like to explore. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is widely acknowledged as Cape Town's premier tourist destination and entertainment hotspot. 250 stores, 45 different restaurants and bars, an arts and crafts centre, an internationally-renowned aquarium and a children's science exploratorium and museum combine to comprise this multi-purpose, dockside environment. The Cape of Good Hope and legendary Cape Point - 'the most famous promontory in the world' - is an area of spectacular beauty.


Quality time can be spent with a special someone by taking in the Cape's natural beauty or indulging in the area's gastronomic delights and rich heritage. Mount Nelson has designed luxurious, three-night, escapes especially with couples in mind. Highlights include a full-day tour of Cape Point Peninsula, romantic drive through the famous Cape Winelands, a seat at the Chef's Table, a visit to the hotel's spa for a couple's treatment or an authentic African drumming experience.

Spa & Wellness

The luxury Librisa Spa is one of Cape Town's most renowned, offering rejuvenating signature treatments that combine local know-how and international expertise to promote total wellbeing. For a truly African experience, the spa partners with skincare companies, Kalahari and Africology, who utilise natural indigenous ingredients in their product range. Face and body treatments take place in eight spacious rooms in the tranquil late-Victorian spa buildings, where guests can also luxuriate in the spa's thermal experiences, including a Finnish sauna, steam bath and plunge pool.


With venues including the ballroom for grand receptions, the function room for intimate gatherings or the lush garden for alfresco ceremonies, there's an array of elegant choices for guests wishing to marry. A team of coordinators advises on every detail of the big day, from flowers to décor and photography, ensuring the couple's every need is met. Morning brunches through to a full banquet can be offered for all tastes and dietary requirements, with a selection of world-class South African and international wines to enjoy.

Hotel Experiences

Artist-in-residence, Cyril Coetzee, can immortalise guests or their loved ones on canvas, with his special oil portrait painting service. Capturing likenesses from supplied photographs, a unique head and shoulders, couple or family portrait is delivered within a few days. Alternatively, those looking to hone their own creativity can sign up for Cyril's three-hour painting classes, suitable for novices and more experienced artists alike, and available for groups or one-on-one tuition.
